In all these years Iran Clinic has dedicated itself to providing quality and affordable medical care for its patients who are mainly from the poor and underprivileged sector of Ghanaian Community.

The premises of the center located in Adabraka measures approximately 810sq. meters with a 3 storey building which was bought by the society and later renovated and expanded to have additional medical departments .The clinic operates in hours between 6 a.m to 2 p.m from Monday to Saturday.
